Representing the world we see is the very reason oil paint was invented and it’s the first thing we wish to understand when we are learning to paint. Visiting artist and teacher Alex Schaefer will teach the process of painting step by step from start to finish. To complement a technical foundation, lessons in art history and color theory will demonstrate ways of seeing while building a sense of personal style and expression. This is the ideal course for the beginning painter and an enlightening experience for the advanced artist as well!
